My main mission was to get a new windscreen wiper arm and I hoped it wouldn't rain on the way. That was a false hope as it started to rain a few km from Atherton but I managed to get to Supercheap Auto without using the wipers. It was a bit tricky to fit so I coughed up the extra $3 to get them to fit it for me.
Then I had an omelette at the Coffee Club - they were very busy and I must have waited 3/4 hr for my meal but it was ok when it finally came. Next came shopping in IGA before going to Big W and buying some new shorts and a shirt. I was looking for another drink container like the one I already have but they didn't have one - nor did anywhere else I tried. K Mart have them for $5 plus $16 postage! Or go down the hill towards Cairns and just pay $5 at K Mart at Smithfield.
On the way past the War Memorial Park at Rocky Creek I took a pic to show how busy it is. It seems that all the caravan parks on the Tableland and along the coast are very full as well.

After that I headed to Mareeba to get an oven thermometer from Mitre 10 but they didn't have my drink thingy either! I did buy a warm, no sleeve jacket at Target as my tracky top is getting past shabby.
A busy but satisfying day ended with happy hour as usual and I've invited a newby couple from Camperdown in Victoeia to come over in the morning and I'll give them a few travelling tips.
